Customer Question

I have replaced the front suspension ball joints, all new bushings, new wheel bearings and new front shocks. There is still a clunk noise on the drivers side when I hit a bump. Any thoughts as to the cause?

Hi George. Thanks for using this site!

If the noise is from the front, then it probably comes from the top shock washer hitting the body (see attached graphic). The cure is to replace it with a smaller one (Jaguar part # *****).

If there are similar noises coming from the rear suspension, then the most probable cause is the rear subframe bushing has moved out of place. The cure is to replace the bushing and bond it to the subframe with an epoxy such as Permatex Quick Set Auto Epoxy.

Best Regards.
